Rendered unemployed, close to bankruptcy and extremely bitter, all three are prepared to do anything to Get Even with The System.
Legally or illegally.
AT A PRESS CONFERENCE in London, an equally bitter, mega-rich Greek shipping heiress Athena Papadopulous castigates the British Government and the British Museum for their refusal to return the legendary Elgin Marbles to where she believes they rightfully belong - the Parthenon Temple in Athens - despite her being willing to pay any sum the Museum may demand.
AN IDLE SPECULATION by one of the three as to just how much she would be prepared to pay for the 'removal' - albeit illicitly - of the marbles from the Museum's Duveen Gallery for transportation back to Greece turns out to be just the beginning of an attempt to carry out what would be the biggest, most outrageous heist of the Century.
